Outstanding: Charlie Wilson & The Gap Band's Hip Hop Legacy

janvier 09, 2011

Good music is timeless. The GAP band has been moving dance floors for decades, and the use of sampling has propelled the work of the group into current music. Check out this mix recorded by my friend DJ Synapse highlighting the legacy the Gap band and Charlie Wilson have left in hip hop. It is refreshing to see Charlie Wilson be so gracious about his role in sample based music, and wonderful to see him working with a friend. Enjoy the mix.

Aim High, Little Giant, Aim High
Aim High, Little Giant, Aim High

décembre 14, 2022

Legendary DJ/author/b-ball sage Bobbito García has released his first children’s book Aim High, Little Giant, Aim High! The story is about Taína, a nine-year-old, Afro Boricua basketball novice growing up in Brooklyn during a pandemic who learns valuable life lessons from family, friends, and the community, both on and off the court. The narrative seamlessly weaves social-emotional learning with math, arts, social justice, identity, culture, and sports education, all in a fun (and at times goofy) manner. The pre-order for the book is already sold out but stay tuned to grab the restock on a hard copy which is on the way.
